December Challenge

Hi everyone, it is the 5th of the month and time for the December Challenge over at Bizzy Becs.
The theme this month is "Anything Goes".

I have gone for a simple technique for my card using the 'Bokeh' technique.  It is terrific fun splashing colour around on water colour paper and then inking over the top with a white craft ink with a circle template to give the out of focus finish.  I have used Darkroom Door stamp set 'Simple Sayings' on my card for the sentiment.

  There are a terrific range of inks, dies and stamp sets  available from Bizzy Becs online store here, so come and have a look around.

Thank you for visiting.

Roses in Blue

Hi everyone, I have done an emboss resist technique for my card.  I have used Darkroom Door stamps sets Full Bloom Vol 1 and Simple Sayings along with Distress Inks and some pearls to finish.  This technique is quite simple and gives such a great finish.

The Darkroom Door stamps sets are available from Bizzy Bec's Online Store here.  Visit Bizzy Bec's online store and check out the great range of products available.

Playing with Distress Inks

Hi everyone, I would like to share my card with you that I have made using Distress Inks to create the background.


I inked up an embossing folder with Antique Linen and put it through the Bigshot.  I then sponged on Vintage Photo as the next layer, then Brushed Corduroy and finished off with Walnut Stain.  I just love the finished colours on the background.


The sentiment is from the Darkroom Door "Simply Sayings" stamp set which I stamped in Walnut Stain on a piece of cream cardstock, punch out and layered up onto a piece of dark chocolate cardstock.  The base card is the dark chocolate cardstock and the mat is cream cardstock.  I finished off my card with some brown pearls and chocolate seam binding ribbon.


The Distress Inks and the stamp set are available from Bizzy Bec's Online Store here.
